Chocolate Oreo Cake – best ever

loading...

Chocolate Oreo Cake – This Chocolate Oreo Cake is to die for! A moist chocolate cake full of Oreo icing! And not just any Oreo icing – it is FULL of crushed up Oreos. An Oreo lover’s dream.

Oreos have been one of my favorite cookies for probably forever. I absolutely love them. The filling is the best part. I Chocolate Oreo Cakedon’t even bother eating a regular Oreo. Only double stuf here. I’ve seen the new mega stuf ones, but haven’t tried them. I have been tempted so many times, but now that I bake so much I just can’t. If I’m going to allow myself to taste the things I make, I cannot be downing an entire box of Oreos too.

So I decided to just add them to my cake. Problem solved.

You guys. There is literally an entire package of Oreos in this cake. DO NOT look at the nutrition facts. Just don’t. Trust me. This cake is for celebrations and celebrations do not include nutrition facts.

The cake layers are made with the most moist cake you’ll ever have. Try it once and you’ll never make another chocolate cake. It’s amazing. Plus, there’s no fancy mixing method – everything is all mixed together right in the bowl.

The Oreos come in with the icing. I’ve said it many times – I like strong flavors. So when I say I’m making an Oreo cake, there’s no holding back. There are 3 cups of Oreo crumbs in the icing. Overkill? Never. Just Oreo perfection.

And to make sure there’s plenty of Oreo in every bite, I made sure to have 3 layers of cake instead of two. That way there’s two full layers of icing in the middle along with the icing on top. Mmmmmm.

And if that wasn’t enough, I added more on top. If there’s one thing I know, it’s that you can’t accuse me of under indulging. You’re welcome
